French audio brand, Focal, has launched its 1000 Series, a range of in-wall and in-ceiling speaker and subwoofer options.

Three years in development, this new flagship range is made in France in Focal’s specialist workshops, the 1000 Series offers a discreet alternative to traditional hifi and home cinema set-ups.

Focal 1000 CI Speakers

The new range uses Focal’s flagship speaker technologies including Beryllium tweeters and ‘W’ cones, as featured on Focal Utopia home speaker range.

They allow for a seamless sonic combination of Focal’s traditional and integrated speakers. The wall speakers feature an adjustable driver, angle them in any direction towards the optimum listening position.  Ceiling speakers use Focal’s patented ‘Easy Quick Install’ system, for tool-free integration.

Wall speakers can be paired with 1, 2, 4 or 6 subwoofers (while using only one channel of amplification), to match the room size and SPL levels desired. Speakon cables are provided for simpler speaker/sub connectivity. Magnetic, ready-to-paint speaker grilles are included for the perfect visual integration in every room.

The In-wall speakers are less than 10cm deep. For even greater flexibility, optional on-wall frames will be available soon. Premium in-ceiling speaker models use same form factors as the popular Focal 300 Series, allowing for easy install upgrades.
